    🦅 Blessings on President’s Day weekend….a good time to reflect on past presidents who have also contribute Greatness to our country and share them with your family/friends

    Thank You, Lord, for President Trump, his MAGA Team, and all his supporters.

      #CarpeDonktum FTW! This made my weekend. Great job 😃
      Loved it with “Everybody Hurts“ by REM…out of copyright. Butthurt got it pulled off YouTube after the first PDJT retweet…two days later? Totally legal for @CarpeDonktum to use, but I must say, with the new song attached…this hits it out the GALAXY! And YouTube can suck it because #LeeGreenwood is #MAGA3X.

        I think it’s actually better with the Lee Greenwood song – pointing out the anti-Americanism of the Democrat party vs the other side.

        The Dems are seeking to overthrow the Constitution and take over the country. That’s sedition and treason, IMO.

        Democrats don’t mind a wall on the California border—because it has already fallen, but there cannot be a wall at the Texas Border. Their entire immigration policy can be summed up in three words:


        You can have a Welfare State OR an Open Borders Policy; but you cannot have both. Everybody knows this but Democrats don’t care. Votes are more important.

    Invoking The 25TH – Still Standing with Michael Caputo

    Liked by 1 person

    • Zimbalistjunior says:

      I know caputo probably thinks he is helping but asking or telling Rosenstein to simply resign is a cop out.
      In the context of everything else we know, from the illegal exoneration of Hillary through the insurance policy and illegal FISAs etc, rosenstein and McCabe were not simply wondering about the health and capacity of the President. This was a coup. And whether or not they took steps to try to use the 25th amendment (and btw who is to say that rosenstein never actually taped the President), they did take steps to actuate the coup: the appointment of mueller as SC.
      McCabe admitted as much.
      There is enough here to indict. Look at the laws the conspiracy and sedition. (Not to mention obstruction of justice and a host of other crimes)

    Also, I’d like to see Barack Obama, Michelle Obama, Oprah Winfrey, Eric Holder, Colin Kaepernick, LeBron James, Shannon Sharpe, Jemele Hill, Marc Lamont Hill, Eugene Robinson, Van Jones, Joy Reid, Don Lemon, Al Sharpton, Jesse Jackson Sr. and Jr., Jesse Williams, Rachel Dolezal, Shaun King, and so many others doling out teachable moments hold a town hall and post multiple headlines on the Jussie Smollett matter. I’d like it to have the same amount of airtime as the original (massively dubious on its face) scenario got in the headlines. I’d like to hear how whether it’s a symbol or pattern of activity, and whether I’d also like to hear if it may play into the challenges of urban communities perhaps as a root cause or a matter of privilege — political privilege, in this case.

    As we wait with baited breath, I submit this article on hoaxes apparently out of the same playbook that initially grabbed headlines, only to fade into relative obscurity amongst those who had trumpeted them:

    I just watched an A&E documentary about the silk road and it’s founder. very interesting. I never knew much about silk road and was curious. It was an anonymous dark web amazon-like illicit drug website using bitcoin and the uspo for deliveries.

    I found it interesting, even coincidental, that the usual three letter agencies as well as the ny fbi office and IRS were involved in the big take down shortly after schumer had a news conference announcing to the world that drugs could be purchased from an anonymous site. Their sales skyrocketed. It made me wonder what was really going on.

    Worst week of the Trump presidency, easily. Congress is not even pretending to respect him anymore. This doesn’t bode well for future legislation. At least it looks like he might fight for the wall using other means. But he sure bitched up and signed that horrible legislation. He has made a lot of big miscalculations about where leverage might come from, and what he might horse trade with. This is what happens when you leave a corrupt enemy intact. It’s like trying to win a war the way we have in the Middle East. If you don’t kill them, they’ll never stop trying to kill you.

      It traces back to failure to correctly read the GOPe and to not enter the presidency with a wartime consciousness regarding the Left. His insistence in entertaining illusions of a modus vivendi with his enemies is strange; given what he experienced during the campaign, almost inconceivable (though his good faith was endearing). He has yet, in my opinion, to understand the dedicated animus of both.

      In two years he has reached, in a sense, Reagan’s second term, in which it is appearing as if system-overload may be settling in.

      An uncompromising stance on the wall would have been tonic to his base and to most of the country, who voted for a kick-ass reformer NOT a compulsive deal-maker (especially a deal-maker with out-an-out Vichyites and seditionists who want him dead).

      You can despise Bannon but I think he would have known better. And you can despise Coulter, but she speaks for a lot of people.

      Go to war, Mr. Trump. It’s time, and the people are behind you.

        2020 is everything…the Pivot to Compromise for the American People has always been 45 strategy! Look back and notice most decisions would be heralded by any other person: The Wall, USMCA, NK Peace, Middle East Peace, Jerusalem recognition, Tax Zones for blighted communities with Governor Control, The Economy, End to Obamacare Mandate…now look for SALT 2.0 and New Healthcare…

This was an unforced error. A huge unforced error. They broke him. Whether or not they now have a template to do so remains to be seen. But he broke, big time. Denying that won’t change it.

      How long is Gillibrand going to repeat PT’s humanitarian crisis of separating families at border before someone, anyone tells her Obama did the same thing?

      She knows, of course, but the democrat media won’t correct her, so the ‘omission’ will stand. Frustrating isn’t it, duchess, to see so much news suppressed?

      If the unawares in the American public knew what illegals are costing taxpayers, there’d be even more support for a wall. What diseases are being brought in, the criminal element, the drugs & on & on.

      Cheap labor, my arse. 🙄 Thanks for some plan speaking, common sense from Pirror.

My friends we are losing our nation, Supreme Court or not. I have spoken to many persons and they are STILL against this President, I just do not understand blindness!~

        • Believe me, I am trying, even to the extent of the risk of losing my job, I have explained that I have even lost my beautiful intelligent daughter because of this, so I resent your statement, there is only so much a person can do. I have given money, I have called the news, I have gone to town halls, I have spoken to many people even while in line at a grocery store, every chance a person could have. I have spoken to our elected leaders, I have been also with bikers for Trump, was one of the Million bikers to DC, I spread my views on social media, etc., etc…. So the comment that “People get the government they deserve” is not necessarily correct, and when you are part of the 3% and told that YOU have to get rid of them, sorry hon, I am not a millionaire, just a person that has worked hard all her life, has experienced war, her family involved with the military, we all have made sacrifices, so sorry, but that was a cold statement and not good enough of an answer. (begging pardon-rant over-I have reasons for dispare)

        Right there with you, clear. I don’t understand it, either.

        I didn’t understand why dems voted in Obamacare when a overwhelming majority of Americans were against it. Yet it was rammed through with the lovely Pelosi telling it needed to be past before one knew what was in it. Elected officials aka as public servants work for the people. Period. The elites wanted control of 1/6th of the economy.

        The corporate media, even operating in a diminished capacity, still controls the narrative. When there is continuous 24/7 Trump bashing, spinning & suppression of the facts, lots of folks think Orange Man Bad. They haven’t been told the facts.


    • WE may have disliked, we may have hated, we may have posted naughty -nasty memes about 0bama. BUT, with that said, if we protested-there was NO violence, we left places CLEANER than when we arrived, we did not destroy property, we did not falsely accuse, we did not harass swag wearers of 0bama or physically attack them, We did not pepper spray, we did not toss urine and rotten eggs, we did not disturb supporters in restaurants airports or airplanes. We did not control a nasty narrative, WE DID respect the office, we WERE concerned where this Country was headed, we DID write and send petitions (which were ignored-even by our own people like Speaker Bohner).
      0bama WAS on TV 23 hours a day, on every talk show, on certain award shows on news shows, BUT, he was given respect, not 24/7 coverage about how evil he was but what a savior he was….Huuuuuuggggeeee Difference !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
